Hooked on this game! 5/5
By Ping! All day!
Love playing this game! Love trivia games. It is a bit glitchy sometimes especially if you have a weak Internet connection. Sometimes it glitches anyway, lost my guitar rewards today because the button wouldn’t load so I closed it out and then guitar was empty. :(
Please Help!!! 4/5
I normally enjoy playing, Backpacker, until this afternoon. I only had had 5 tickets. I tried to use all of them in Moscow, for St. Basils Cathedral. It took my (5) tickets and nothing happened. Is there any way I could get reimbursed for the (5) tickets that I did not use? I have (0) now, and for my game, it’s very difficult to earn those. Thank you so much for your understanding.
It happened AGAIN!! I was in Honolulu and I tried to play the first landmark. I had (6) tix total. It took (5) of my tickets, but would never let me answer any questions for that landmark!! Now I only have (1) tix and did not get to try for the landmark. This is getting old!!
Great fun! 5/5
I really enjoy playing this game.
Lots of fun!

Great game for twenty minutes 1/5
The constant job rejections, trying to complete sights with barely any knowledge beforehand, and answering the same questions over and over again are getting tiresome. It was a fun game, but it’s getting old real fast.
Fun and a way to learn! 5/5
Great game and fun
This is such a fun game! So enjoyable
It took my tickets! 2/5
I love this game but have become very frustrated with it lately. I am in Stockholm and had trouble getting the Vasa Museum quiz. When I finally do ( after buying tickets to play because it takes awhile to collect them otherwise) the game freezes and closes. When I reopen I have lost the tickets for playing but didn’t get the prize!!
Love this game 5/5
Fun to play, haven’t lost interest yet. Learning new things every day.!
Mini games bad 3/5
By Bumblebee SRT
I don’t mind the mini games but some are just poorly thought out and poorly designed.
Good game but some issues 3/5
The game is a lot of fun overall. There are some issues that are really annoying, however. The biggest problem is that I have with the game I have to do with the job diplomas. Too often, I keep getting options for jobs I’ve already completed and have one the diploma for. Additionally, on a very frequent basis, I call and get rejected. This is quite annoying and frustrating. Furthermore, there is way too much emphasis on sports trivia in the game. Some of the non-trivia jobs are ridiculously hard making it almost impossible to get a diploma.
There is an option to submit questions that could be potential used as trivia for jobs. I have done a number of these but I’ve never received any credit under the area we’re supposed to get coins for being an apprentice etc. also, I’ve never seen any of the jobs I’ve created come up as job options so I don’t even know if these ever get used in a game or not.
I’d love to see additional cities and jobs added with updates.
Fun game but to move forward you have to buy tickets! Not good to have to spend money after completing one challenge!!!!!
Great game 5/5
MY FAVORITE SUBJECT OF ALL TIME... Besides science, of course. 5/5
Guys, you should SO make a school addition because more kids should know about the things that are in the game. Can you add religions to the game because I am Christian but I also have respect for the Catholic Church because they believe in God and the Holy Bible. But I disagree VERY strongly with religions that don't believe in the Bible or God but if I saw them In person I would have respect for them, I also know a bit of the religion of the Egyptians, Confucianism, and would like to learn about Catholics and Islam although I don't believe or follow Muslims or Catholics (which I understand that they believe in God but what they also believe in like Mary, Queen of Heaven, and all others which they call brothers, sisters, I think cousins and fathers. That is the only thing I don't believe or understand. Can you teach us all about that stuff in an update please?
Totally addicted 5/5
I am almost done but will never be Able to pass the memory expert job. Every time I make a mistake the game subtracts. I don’t feel this is fair. You have a time limit also. Please consider not subtracting on errors. I will have to quit the game without conquering all and I have put months into it.
Love this App! Only wish there were more questions!
Kinda of boring 3/5
By Just me with 5
There are not new places added so when you finish the game which is so fun you’re just done it leaves you wanting more but never getting anything
Great ap 5/5
Love the knowledge gained from each city and country as you travel the world.
Great educational game and great for adults too! 5/5
Great trivia game, and you learn a lot along the way.
GREAT GAME 5/5
Great source of information regarding countries I may not ever visit in person. Love the game
Awesome game! 5/5
This game is great!
I love this game
Love the game
It is a great idea for a game but.... 3/5
I really enjoyed the game when I first found it. I like the idea of trivia and traveling. I’ve honestly learned a lot about various countries. I also like that you have an option to play against others.
What I don’t like is the jobs. In order to move from city to city you have to buy airline tickets and that takes lots of coins. The jobs are how you accumulate coins. 80% of the time you are turned down for a job. You have the option sometimes to try again if you pay 1 ticket. I have tried that and still been refused. Also you can pay 5 tickets and see more jobs but then you get turned down again. Also a lot of the job offers are the same over and over. I end up sitting in a city after I have accomplished all tasks on my passport for days trying to accumulate enough coins to move on. It honestly gets boring. I mean the point of playing the games is the trivia and you keep getting turned down so you can’t play. I have found a few that never turn you down like maps of cities where you have no idea what it is or a memory game where it messes up half way through. It is really frustrating. Definitely need more variety and a higher approval rate for accepting the jobs plus if you pay a ticket to try again, you should be approved.
As much as I like the idea of the game if I have to keep sitting days in the same area because of lack of jobs to earn money, I find myself playing less and less. Plus the jobs are pretty much the same over and over even though there’s plenty others out there. We should have a larger choice.
Anyhow other than the job thing, for the most part I like it. They could maybe come up with a variety of tasks for the cities. It’s pretty much the same over and over but I could tolerate that if I could get more jobs!
Too few cities 4/5
I would give this 5 stars because it’s fun & challenging. However, I must give it 4 because I’ve gotten 5 stars in all the cities & there aren’t anymore. I’ve never completed all levels in any game, let alone this quickly. It was fun while it lasted
Fun game 5/5
By just me 14
Fun just wish I could get more coins
Too expensive 4/5
I love this game but it can become expensive
Cool game 5/5
It’s really fun to play. I’m addicted!
Love this!! 5/5
I love geography... and trivia... combining both is a dream!!! I now have my bestie playing... so much fun.... and wow have I learned some great stuff!!!
Too hard = not fun for long 3/5
My major frustration with this game is the landmark quizzes. You don’t know anything about the country you’re visiting, you get a quick lesson on the landmark then you have to answer a bunch of questions about it. If you don’t pass you don’t get the lesson again. You just have to keep guessing and failing and wasting time and stars trying to master it...not fun.
Some of the jobs were too hard too. Identify parts of a plane, train, bike, etc.? Sure...not.
I’m a grown person too. A younger person would struggle even more. Ease up a bit! The game is well designed but just too complicated to be enjoyable for long.

I have now collected everything I need and am stockpiling my coins and tickets for when the new cities arrive. I would like to add that the Backpacker team is the best I have ever encountered. I had a problem/ question and the stayed with me to get it resolved. Lots of emails flew back and forth. They were very helpful. Love the game.
Best trivia game ever 5/5
Very clever and addictive!!!
Great world trivia but a few frustrating parts 3/5
By Ridiculously fun!
I've been playing this game for a couple of weeks now. I have really enjoyed the trivia & learning about different cities around the world. My biggest complaint is how often I'm getting turned down for jobs, especially when trying for the Expert level. I just want to play the game so it's extremely frustrating to get turned down on every job available for a certain day (and I don't want to repeat levels I've already accomplished). So unfortunately I'm going to take a break from the game for a while to see if maybe the developers will address this (as I see quite a few people who have the same complaint).
It’s a fun game
Fun game 4/5
By Tina in NC!
Fun enjoyable game. Uses your mind and doesn’t prompt you on purchases. Easy to advance if you have the knowledge! Read the tidbits offered.
A learning game 5/5
By Tired of t.v.
This is a wonderful game to learn with.
Just love it
No longer a favorite... 2/5
I have learned quite a bit about the countries I have visited so far. Thanks for the continuing ed. I could do without the stupid game jobs though...
Travel, trivia 3/5
By Read, Rise, Resist
Fun and even educational but there aren’t enough cities added so it’s easy to get bored with the same old questions and places.
Great game 5/5
Great game very addicting
Love the game but sights stay closed 4/5
Why do the sights stay closed after trying to complete game?
This is the best trivia game that is also fun and keeps you entertained longer than one day 5 stars no problem
Fun, interesting,and educational. 5/5
Love this game.
Love the game and it is addicting. I gave this low rating because first there is no instruction you have to muddle your way through the game. I just found out that there is a place to fill out your passport to register your email address. Did not know this until I tried to contact the company to ask a question. Received an error message that there was no record of email. I went to passbook but could not fine page to fill out to register email. Guess I am screwed since I cannot find how to fill out the passbook. I can not ask a question because email not registered.
Addition to review since you cannot send a second review as I said before fun game, very addicting. My complaint is once you finished a city ready to move to next city the transportation to the next destination does not appear. Even though you have enough tickets or money. So your choices are hanging around answering repeated questions. Or go to the closest city and hang around answering question hope the city you want to go comes up. Wasting time and money. Once you have finished current city the transportation to new city should appear. I agree with the jobs not being able to perform the job and being denied all jobs. Plus the questions on sports I don’t care who hit the most home runs. Also the memory expert is terrible need to replace. I know someone who loves this game but because of a disability they cannot do the memory game.
I am addicted to this game , however I am nearly finished everything ... any new cities coming up soon ?
